As a parent of 2 children who have attended the school's Gifted Program, I speak very highly of Auburn High.The school has dedicated teachers, offers rigorous education with numerous AP courses, has a tremendous Scholastic/Quiz Bowl and Science Olympiad Teams which rank statewide and nationally, as well as many other varied and well-rounded extra-curricular academic/sports opportunities to challenge the aspiring student. The school's gifted program has an enviable record of student placement into more selective colleges and universities. Rockford Gifted High School Program is a a jewel in the crown of our public education system.

As a parent I went to Auburn High School . And I don't know if anything has changed at this school. I feel as long as you are into some sport or some club you won't have to worry about running with the wrong crowd or getting into any trouble.
